In all probability, Rossignoli is the most famous bicycle shop of Milan.
Since the 1920s, the fate of this store has been interwoven with the history of the city and the passion of its people for cycling.
To this day they are proudly presenting a full range of bikes from their own shop brand.
Our Rossignoli Corsa from the 1950s clearly shows that the machines they produced in the past were top notch pieces, that were fully on par with the best bikes that the big names of those days could offer.
The clean frame was designed with lightweight butted steel tubes which are connected by chromed Malaguti lugs. The paintwork is an elegant contrast from pearly grey and a vibrant petrol. The fact that this is still the original paintjob impresses even more.
The parts are formed by a Campagnolo Sport shifting, a variety you do not find very often. Other great parts include a vinatge pump, Magistroni bearings and crankset, Campagnolo hubs and a beautiful and extra strong Nanni stem. Some highlights are set by Rossignoli brandings, such as on the headset and the seat post clamping.
This really rather rare piece of Italian cycling history is fully checked and serviced and good enough for many more miles of riding, the strade Bianche of L'Eroica included.
